    I found out yesterday that I've gotten picked up for grad school!

    I'm tentatively going to be working on nano-sensors for UMCP's aerospace engineering smart structures lab.

    I have yet to read any of the background material, but it'll basically be tiny "fingers" of metal which behave similar to quartz crystals... you deflect them and they create a voltage. If you have arrays of them, oriented in different directions, you can detect accelerations, fluid flows, etc.

    It's not entirely what I was shooting for, but it's really cool, nonetheless!

    wow, picked up for grad school. The only thing I've ever been picked up for is when I was picked up on a "failure to appear" warrant.

    I got picked up for ditching school once... The truant officer showed up and koncked on my door and stuff. It was fun. She even let me take a shower before I was carried away.


    Btw, congrats, Enigma!

    Thanks all

    Masters first. We'll see how things are going once I get closer to the thesis before I decide on the PhD. Luckily UMaryland requires you get the Masters first, regardless.
